These 365 pen-and-ink-drawings are from the original ‘370 never coloured pen drawings’ that Pim van Halem drew in a big ‘dummy’ between 1987 and 1999. Five drawings in that book were not actually drawn with a pen but with its ink cartridge. These were kept out of this website. Hence the title:, ‘tekening’ being the dutch word for a drawing.

In 2001 the Caldic Collection, a major Rotterdam based art collection, acquired the original book ‘370 never coloured pen drawings’, with ‘the Title Book’ as a supplement, together in a wooden cassette on a reading desk. Pictures of it can be found here.

Of any of these drawings a print on high quality printing paper (250gr Hahnemühle) can be purchased. It will be sent to you in passe-partout, size A4. Price € 36,50. Please reproduce the title. Use the contact button to order.
